MUNICIPAL CLAIMS, WRITS OF SCIRE FACIAS AUTHORIZED Act of Mar. 22, 1933, P.L. 18, No. 14 Cl. 53 AN ACT To authorize boroughs and townships of the first class to sue out writs of scire facias on certain municipal claims, where more than five years have elapsed since said claims were filed, and to reduce such claims to judgment; and providing for the revival and collection of such judgments. Section 1. Be it enacted, &c., That whenever any borough or township of the first class has heretofore filed in the office of the prothonotary of the proper county any municipal claim or claims, and the borough or township of the first class has not, within the period of five years after the date on which any such claim was filed, sued out a writ of scire facias to reduce the same to judgment, then, in any such case, any such borough or township of the first class may, within six months after the passage and approval of this act, issue its praecipe for a writ of scire facias on any such municipal claim and proceed to judgment in the manner provided by law to obtain judgments upon municipal claims; and such judgment shall be a valid judgment and be a lien upon the real estate upon which it was a lien at the time it was filed, and said judgment may be revived and collected as other judgments upon municipal claims are revived and collected: Provided, however, That the lien of any such judgment shall not reattach against any real estate transferred to any purchaser during the time when the lien of any such municipal claim was lost, nor shall the lien of any such judgment impair or affect the priority of the lien of any mortgage or other lien which gained priority because of the failure of the borough or township of the first class to sue out the writ of scire facias within the five year period, or was entered of record during the time the lien of such municipal claim was lost. This act shall be in effect immediately upon its passage, and approval by the Governor.
